Every child loves a children’s book and it is not unusual to find a young girl or boy who will devour them. Since so many of the children’s books published these days tend to be about the same things as the adults, and these stories have gone on to become classics, parents are not always happy about the decision to leave them with a children’s book. Many of them are disappointed by what they see, and once a child reaches their teens and can read the words for themselves they may not want to read anymore.
However, even if the story is about an evil cat, there may be nothing wrong with leaving them with a children’s book that consists of dark fairy tales and a little white lie at the end of each chapter. If the author has provided a page at the end of the story with all the information they need to know about the child, such as the name of the character, the name of the place, and if there is a character that means something to the story, then perhaps that is all that is needed. With so many characters, places, and details in a children’s book, a parent may be overwhelmed, but that does not mean that the story should be abandoned.
The author should make sure that the child knows what happens in the end of the story, and if there is a little white lie, that it is not spoiled. If the author goes out of their way to tell the reader what the outcome will be, even if it is wrong, that is telling the reader too much and in a children’s book the reader should be able to figure out if the story will be good or bad. After all, a child cannot figure out the ending of a story in their mind.
Sometimes, the end of the story is completely irrelevant to the story. With a book such as The Chronicles of Narnia, there is little point in discussing what happens with the White Witch’s broomstick if the ending of the story will not allow the reader to see it. Although they do not like the ending of the story, a child is sure to not like the ending of the book as well.
In the case of a small fairy tale, the ending is not a part of the story at all, it is simply a part of the many stories that have come before. In these cases, a parent may not feel that the ending of the story is relevant to the story at all.
In order to make the ending of the story relevant, one or both of the parents should go over the story. They should find out exactly what is going to happen and what will happen to the characters at the end of the story.
After the parents have read through the story and have had a chance to talk about what is going to happen, the children need to be given a few minutes to themselves to figure out what will happen next. In this way they will have learned something about the story and will be less likely to leave a child with a book that will leave them bored and confused.
Children do not like to read when they are bored, they like to be entertained. A children’s book is not necessary, but a child can still learn about a story when they read one. If a book does not interest the child then they may not want to read a story ever again.
